Ready to roof on mill shed but with 100+ days would be hard to stay on a metal roof.

Way to hot to do that. It took me over a week just to put up 5 sheets on my camp. Good news this morning. Our temp dipped below 80 for the first time in two weeks this morning. Got down to 79. ;D

Just HOT out there, but just had to get things done around the camp and mill landing area before any rain comes.

 

 

Moving dirt, pushing trash logs (small gum) and what not, burning cut offs with mud and things are looking better.

 

 

 

 

 

 

But before doing that, I had to get up a ladder and hang the last of the tarp to close in my camp building. That is 26' up and that is not something I like to do anymore. ;D

 

 

Now, if only it would rain just a little to help pack the loose dirt down some.

Looks more like 16', but you know how high it is.
Good that you have it tarped up and ready for the rain.
You guys need some drying time, sometime soon.

I'll give it 19 feet max.  But I'm there too.  Used to be I was never afraid to get high.  Now between stiffness and dizziness, the confidence is gone.  I used to laugh at guys who acted like frightened kittens.  Now I'm getting there. That's why the ridge on the shop I want to build will be up there 30 feet.  It's not the fall that kills you.

Many many years ago, I did power line work. Used to walk the line from pole to pole. Now, I don't think that would fly. Heck, I don't think they climb poles anymore. ;D And yes, that is 26' at the peak. That is a 8/12 roof line.  Walls are 10' and another 42" for sills and pillows.

Guess I was judging by the distance between the ladder rungs of 12". Maybe they are a bit more.

That is a long way up.

And tightrope walking power lines must have raised some hair on the back of the neck.  I wouldn't ever have had the balance to do that.

I wuz going by the ladder rungs too.  I worked for the phone company, but in the CO on the frame.  If we took a ladder two steps at a time, the safety patrol were all over us.  No having fun.

Had a very cool morning here. Got some sawing, but when it came to third log, I had to shut it down. That was before 10 am. Way to hot.

Did four hours of cleaning around the mill.  Wife informed me I still had to go to work tomorrow, so I called it a day also.....on the way inside, I looked at the temp.  It was sitting between 97-98*F in the shade, at least the humidity was 'reasonable'.


I hate cleaning too!  But like you....it has to be done.
